For a perfect and satisfactory result, it is recommended to apply a semi-transparent varnish in a beauty salon. Before laying, the beautician first prepares the nails by filing them, cleaning them and pushing back the cuticles. Then, she applies the base. The made hand must spend 30 seconds under the UV lamp.
After that, apply the two coats of varnish. Therefore, it is necessary to respect a drying time of 30 seconds between the two passages. Finally, she puts on a top coat which also dries under the UV lamp. This is the last layer, which brings shine to the varnish to give a nice finish.
If you want to install your semi-permanent varnish yourself, you must have all the tools necessary for the operation:
- a nail file
- push back cuticles
- a buffing block
- a base coat
- a nail cleaner
- a UV or LED lamp
- semi-permanent varnish in the color of your choice
- the top coat varnish for the final layer to protect manicured nails while giving them more shine.
In addition, you also need a gentle manicure set to take care of your nails on a daily basis.
